Here's another "same" comment
Yep. Segfaults in 19.04 after update yesterday.
That being said, does anyone have the .deb for the previous version? The APT repo seems to have been purged for previous versions (thanks, Spotify).
Googled and took a risk on a mirror.
If you're interested on risking the mirror, here's the URL:
To downgrade, simply install it with dpkg and hold it so it doesn't get updated:
sudo dpkg -i spotify-client_188.8.131.52.gb45d2a6b-10_amd64.deb
sudo apt-mark hold spotify-client
Otherwise, use snap for now and deal with the slowness.
Same here. Pretty annoying. Ubuntu 19.04, Spotify version 184.108.40.206.gf614956d, Copyright (c) 2019, Spotify Ltd.
I thought I would use the web player as an alternative, but I have to enable some DRM stuff before it will play any music. Even more annoying.
The funny thing is, starting the web player in a (chrome) browser has now helped me twice starting the desktop client succesfully afterwards?
And a bit more information about the segfault:
Curl Thread general protection fault ip:7fb096ed96b1 sp:7fb02bffc888 error:0 in libcurl-gnutls.so.4.5.0[7fb096eae000+60000]
I solved the problem installing the following package:
sudo apt-get install libcanberra-gtk-module
That doesn't work, for me. And on a sidenote: I managed to segfault Spotify after logging in to the web player, so that turned out to be a red herring as well.
When debugging with gdb, I get this:
Thread 27 "Curl Thread" received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

Installing the flathub package works (not a fan of snap, cause of being distro-centric).
